    For those complaining about Samardzija keeping the Reds in check, please note that Jeff Suppan pitched 5 scoreless against the Brewers today. Jeff Suppan.

    Rolen is hitting .178. It's not that early anymore.

    Rolen is off the books at the end of the year right?

    No amount of defense carries that bat, none.

    Late innings only. Heck, Votto is down to .282. No one is hitting consistently.

    40% of the time, men on base

    Votto
    2301 career ab's
    996 with men on base
    43% of the time, men on base

    Bruce
    1933 career ab's
    874 with men on base
    45% of the time, men on base

    Doesn't look like that much of a drop off to me and you'd almost HAVE to expect a smaller percentage to be on for the 8 hole hitter.

    With such a dramatic drop off in DP's hit into, I'd say it's a safe bet that he wouldn't hit into more in the 4 hole.
